Planning is much less expensive than failure

Most business failures boil down to either mistakes with money or mistakes with people; both are fixable, and both can minimized with good planning, tools & systems.

We are big believers in planning your way through the foreseeable problems ahead before spending money on growth.  So, when its time to focus on growth you can grow quickly and hit your goals knowing that when problems come you will be ready.


The day to day busy-ness of running a business can make it feel like you never have time to sit down & plan your next steps.  We can help with that; getting an outside perspective makes it much easier to find and fix  issues that steal your time, focus and energy.  

We help business owners keep one eye on the day-to-day and one eye on the future by crafting plans & systems just for your business.

The PAAAR System is a result of thousands of hours analyzing the successful &unsuccessful practices of hundreds of businesses and identifying how they handled similar problems.  We incorporate the PAAAR System in multiple aspects of consulting and teaching business owners of how apply it on their own.

When combined with our financial & operations modeling tools, we help business owners foresee how & when to make specific changes in their operation to boost profits, control costs & accomplish their goals.

The specific contents of each clients plan is unique & the work is customized to their company using their own data.

Secret Sauce

You will not find another consulting team that cares about your journey and your perspective and wants you to win as much as we do. 

We understand that winning looks different for different people and that some things, like protecting time with your family or running your business in accordance with your morals or your faith are wins that no amount of monetary success can match. 


We will help you plan a business that makes money without compromising  your personal priorities, and when tough decisions need to be made we will help you understand the financial implications of your options.  We know how to help you through those choices because we have made them in our business.

Each stage of business development requires specific focus, what are you focused on right now?


Understand the events that cause problems & how to minimize them.

90% of the business plans  written lack the financial & operational details entrepreneurs need to help guide their business in real life.  A good plan should do more than help you get a loan.

In real life when businesses have problems owners often abandon their plan and try anything to make the immediate problem go away, even if the 'fix' creates a bigger set of problems. 


8 Fifteen plans are different. We  help owners foresee the events or decisions that can cause  problems as well as the options to fix them.  By using the PAAAR system & our data tools clients can understand their options and make informed decisions so when problems show up they cause less stress & cost less  money


Trial & error as a business strategy is way too expensive.

Whether you are launching a new business or a new initiative for an existing business it takes a lot of work, and that work needs to produce results.  

Launching without a methodology and a specific set of criteria to measure the impact of the work is a great way to spend more money and miss the results you are looking for.  Trial & error as a business strategy is very expensive.

We help clients launch specific initiatives, following a set plan with measured results where each initiative adds value and gets you closer to your goals.  Narrowing focus to only launching value adding initiatives makes it easier to grow quickly when the time to focus on growth comes


Focusing on growth without the systems to support it is a mistake.

Once you have a workable plan and know how to make data driven decisions, it's time to  implement  the systems that will support your clients & staff without sacrificing profits.  These are the key to sustained growth.  

Focusing on growth without these pieces in place will only  produce short term results.  Customers & employees don't stay with companies that don't take care of them.  


8 Fifteen helps growth-ready companies design and implement the systems that underpin consistent revenue generation and profitability.   

There are lots of ways to make money but not all produce consistent profitability.  

If you are ready to start or grow your business we are ready to help.

People often ask where our name, 8 Fifteen, comes from.  It comes from Romans 8:15 which reminds us to not make decisions based on fear but instead be secure in who we are in Christ.  We don't preach to our clients but we do approach our lives & our work from the perspective that business pursuits should fit inside who someone is and what their life-priorities are, not the other way around.
